Sunglasses with Mask?

Found some really neat polarized mirror red sunglasses for cheap and put them on with my mask out of curiosity (Vforce profiler w/clear lense).

Honestly, it doesn't look too bad. Ergonomically, it feels great, too. I've never seen anybody at my field do this. Do any of you guys do this with your old shades instead of buying brand new lenses?

My Empire Events came with a clear lens, which was kind of disappointing. I shelled out $30 and bought the all-black Ninja lens. I just love the way it looks.

Sure, the sunglasses probably feel great when you put your mask on at home. Just wait until you're running around and sweating your *** off. Those sunglasses will be coming off pretty quickly.

I have the Profits with a mirror gradient lens, it works great indoors and out.

I have a smoke, clear, shaded mirror, and amber. All for different types of weather I play in. Besides the mirrored pair, those are just bad ***.

I like the HD lens that dye offers on their i4 and the smoke lens on my eventz were great too. I wear glasses, so I gotta get my tint on the mask.

Well... it doesn't feel any different than wearing normal glasses, which I wear all of the time.

To me glasses are more comfy then contacts with paintball goggles, but that is also because my eyes swallow contacts so I can't really wear them...

I do occasionally use sunglasses under a clear lens, but any glasses worn in a mask will tend to fog up sooner or later.

Unless you need prescription glasses I dont see the point of wearing shades under your goggles. Nothing even cool about it in my opinion. You can just get mirrored or tinted lenses for your goggles.

I think you might've skipped the part about me getting these sunglasses for very cheap: Oakley Half J's for about 20 bucks brand new. I didn't really buy them FOR paintball... But who knows, I'm testing the combo this later today, and we'll see if it serves a purpose or not.

You actually never included how much you paid for them or why. You only asked if anyone else uses only shades instead of tinted/mirrored lenses

I said they were cheap, and put them on with my mask 'out of curiousity'. I was probably misunderstood; I didn't mean to buy sunglasses instead of mirror lenses. Rather, I was wondering if anyone had a pair of shades sitting around that they used instead of tinted lenses to avoid the extra cost

Who cares how cheap they are? They'll fog when you start sweating, I guarantee it. If you're doing it to look "cool" (which I suspect), then I question your taste.

Whatever, try it out yourself and find out. Everyone is telling you what will happen, but you obviously aren't listening.

Lol, I did it out of curiousity! Doesn't matter how stupid looking it was, I wasn't completely serious… after playing, they acted pretty much like normal glasses. Nothing special. I definitely didn't look cool, haha, but that kind of stuff doesn't really bother me. No need for some of those somewhat hostile, 'you have no idea what you're talking about,' attitudes
